. the truth is that the fundamental assumptions of modern science, scientific culture part of the ideological magnitude of the enlightenment. in his famous lectures on the roots of romanticism, isaiah berlin had the ideology in disarray. the view is there some nature of things such that if you know this nature in yourself and the relationship and understand the relationship between everything that composes the universe, then your goal rosales facts about yourself much become clear to rebut all these things that occur, but that there is such knowledge that is the foundation of the entire western tradition. to view is that of a jigsaw puzzle of which we must defend the fragments of the secret treasure, with which we must speak. the essence of this view is that there is a body of facts to which we must admit. sign this submission. science is being guided by the nature of things. scrupulous regard for what there is, not deviation from the fact understanding knowledge at tatian. my claim in the book is the message of narrow science is as much the same as that of so-called new atheist a

education, specifically the lack of women training in science and technology. that's a theme that's also being addressed by the u.n. today in what they've called the day of the girl child. here are some recent statistic on women in the technology industry, they make for interesting reading. in 2010 only 15% of u.s. computer science undergraduates were female. only 10% of internet entrepreneurs across the world are women. and yet 30% of the best paid jobs for women are in the technology sector. so, to discuss how we can get more girls, and young women interested in science and technology, i'm joined by belinda palmer who is c.e.o. of lady geek, an agency that makes technology more accessible to women and girls. i'm also happy to say we've got a 13-year-old student and a participant in one of those miss geek campaigns. i'm going to get to the part of that in a moment here. but i'll start with you, belinda. is this really necessary? do you need to work very hard to get young women into science and technology? interested in it? >> absolutely. in the u.k., only 17% of the technology workforce

. (laughter) so i am giving a wag of the finger to the "new york times" science writer ashley merryman for an op-ed she wrote last week entitled "losing is good for you." well, if you really feel that way, ms. merryman, great news, i think you're a loser. (laughter) merryman here claims america has gone trophy crazy, especially when it comes to our kids and that after years of researching the effects of praise on kids "the science is clear: awards can be powerful motivators but non-step recognition does not inspire children to succeed, instead it can cause them to underachieve." wrong! (laughter) wrong! this country was built on awards. what do you think gave washington the confidence to defeat the british? it was his fourth grade most improved karate participation profy! (laughter) listen up! listen up, the "new york times." i know what's going on here. you published some liberal j.d. about awards being terrible and losing the s the best right after i win these.

science professor at california state university. he joins us from california. professor thanks so much for being with us, the house republicans failed to even bring a vote tonight. now that the ball is back in the senate's court why should we believe that a viable deal is insight? >> well, like most americans, i guess i want to believe that ideal can be reached. but the real problem is in the house of representatives. what you have got is a small to medium-sized group of republicans who are feeling that they need to stand on principle. and that the principle that they are stands on the ground is number one, to try to modify or delete obama care, but also to try to get spending under control. and typically you think of republicans as being, you know, sort of tied to wall street. but the faction we are talking about here is a faction that doesn't care so much about what wall street wants. and so you know, there may be some pressure as we see the markets shifting, but this group of anywhere from 20 to 40 republicans, isn't necessarily going to be responsive to that. >> do you think this i

our national laboratories has produced some tremendous results in science. i just want to go through some of them. the gentleman from california talked about nonproliferation and what the research has done at the national laboratories as far as reducing the stockpiles across the world. well, because of the ldrd work, what we have seen is that we are able to better test nuclear weapons and verify countries and the numbers they're claiming they have for nuclear weapons across the world because we have this ldrd research. we provide cleaner energy vehicles. the chevy volt, for example. the chevy volt would not be able o cruise on battery power. also rblings airport security, we are thankful and grateful that at the airport, they are able to detect many of the explosives that terrorists would seek to use to take down an airplane. ld rmp d we can thank them that makes our airports so much safer. i was a prosecutor for seven years and so many cases, whether homicides or sexual assaults, we were able to put perpetrators away because of d.n.a. research conducted at our national labor
